« Part 9: Wudworx Board Maker Plugin Part 10 of Sketchup Resources series no next part

I’ve had this one on the back burner for a …while… but with family etc never had time to finalize it properly until now, but am very excited with what this one can do.

what is it?

It’s a new plugin for SketchUp (no longer Google SketchUp as they sold it to Trimble). This one is for making/drilling holes. consider it a cordless drill or sorts combined with one of those shelving pins drilling jigs to align and distribute holes in a straight line at even spacing.

This plugin the “making holes” in parts process in general, can do regular holes, countersunk, and counter-bored as well as making arrays of holes.

here is a short demo of what it can do:

Thanks for watching
Happy New Year
